China’s first labour law took effect in 1995, covering the rights and responsibilities of both the employer and the employee. Since then, a Chinese employment relationship is regulated not only by the labour law, but also by the employee handbook and the employment contract – both of which we will explain in more detail

Questions specifically arise when it comes to contract termination and it is thus essential to have a deep understanding on the importance of the labour contract, how it is normally drafted and how to deal with the different contract termination scenarios.

This webinar will focus on:

  • Chinese Labour Law
  • Labour Contracts
    • Importance of labour contracts,
    • Labour contracts and staff manual
    • Open-ended and fixed-term contracts
    • Part-time employees
    • Probation period

    • Confidentiality clauses
  • Other Labour Regulations and Benefits, such as:
